Work out, that is. Every time I think I will do more, I end up doing less or none at all. So, my goal of two a day work outs is on hold for now. Instead, I will get in some exercise at least one time a day and if I can do more, hooray! I thi... Read more

"Fatso", "Chubby", "Fatty", "Waddles" -- Those were the most common names that the mean kids called me when I was a little girl. Even my parents called me chubby as they continually loaded my plate with very unhealthy fare and told me to clean... Read more

I'm putting many of my stressors behind me and choosing to have joy in my life today. I catch myself in negative self talk and immediately go somewhere else in my mind. After all, I have myriad wonderful memories and so many and varied success... Read more

Later today my husband has to head out of town for a few days. It's the first time since we moved two months ago that I'll be alone in the new condo. The anticipation feels strange. I don't like it very much when he's away, but it does give m... Read more
